Guide/Version-Specific Mod Recommendations[edit]

  No guides are using this mod

Version-specific Recommendations must use a Version string equal to that of both ModList and Guide!Copy/paste the intended guide version from the "Existing Guides" table above (if it exists) into the field below.Editors: Please DO NOT use wiki headings inside of custom Recommendations and also avoid using templates if at all possible! Template calls add to the max threshold, and headings mess up the guide ToC.


Download the "Grass Control" file from Main Files and install as normal.

IF AND ONLY IF grass LOD will be generated using DynDOLOD 3.00, also download the "Grass Generation" file from Optional Files, and continue as follows:

  1. Double click on the mod in the MO left pane
  2. Click on the "Text Files" tab
  3. Find the following settings and edit as follows:
    UseGrassCache = True
    ExtendGrassDistance = True - Default is 'False'. Value of 'True' is necessary for OverwriteGrassDistance > 7000
    EnsureMaxGrassTypesPerTextureSetting = 15 - This will match Cathedral Landscapes default
    OverwriteGrassDistance = 8000 - This overrides all other INI sources. Lower this value to increase performance
    OverwriteGrassFadeRange = 3000 - This overrides all other INI sources. Lower this value to increase performance
    OverwriteMinGrassSize = 60 - This overrides all other INI sources. INCREASE this value to increase performance. Cathedral Landscapes default is also '60'
    OnlyLoadFromCache = True
    DynDOLODGrassMode = 2 - To trade-off better performance for more noticeable grass LOD transition, consider setting this to '1'
    This setting is coupled to GrassLargeReference INI setting in DynDOLOD 3.00, so be certain to change that setting as noted on that mod page.
  1. Navigate to the Grass Generation archive and open it in 7-zip
  2. From Windows Explorer, navigate to C:/Modding/Tools/Mod Organizer/plugins
  3. Drag into the MO Plugins directory
  4. Close and restart MO

Pre-caching grass for LOD generation is covered in the Step SkyrimSE guide.
